I think my problem with a lot of the distributions I'm seeing is that I really 
despise the way they do admin. 

I find the Kubuntu installation which tries to hide the concept of root very 
untrustworthy. It makes me wonder what else they have mangled in non-standard 
ways that will boobytrap things for someone from a UNIX background.
